Shaggy, Caribbean artists record Haiti track

'Rise Again' song will raise money for earthquake survivors

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Shaggy has recorded a new song with a diverse Caribbean cast to raise money for earthquake survivors in Haiti.

The song is called "Rise Again" and was written by the Jamaican reggae rapper.

It features fellow Jamaican reggae star Sean Paul, Haitian musician Belo and soca singers Alison Hinds of Barbados and Destra Garcia from Trinidad and Tobago.

Shaggy said Tuesday the song lets Haitians know that "we are here for them." It is part of a relief fund established by mobile phone company Digicel.

The 7.0-magnitude quake on Jan. 12 killed an estimated 200,000 people in Haiti.

Shaggy is best known for the 2000 hit "It Wasn't Me."
